"Month of Salads" Post V: Stroubes Salad with Grilled Shrimp

Stroubes Salad with Grilled Shrimp
Stroubes has a been a great downtown dining destination for years now so it seemed fitting that went I went there for lunch recently I tried their signature salad. The Stroubes salad starts with fresh field greens, then loads on bacon-shallot vinaigrette, blue cheese crumble, spiced pecans, cherry tomatoes, and pickled okra for $8. I opted for a handful of grilled shrimp to top my leafy lunch for an additional $8. Obviously, this step could be avoided, or you could choose the chicken, sirloin, salmon, or fried oysters instead. The salad did me right for lunch as Michele was able to join me on her break from Jury Duty across the street. The bacon-shallot vinaigrette highlighted the salad because of its flavor that added a little substance to each bite. The blue cheese and grilled shrimp also played nicely with each other on the bed of greens. Another salad, another successful August lunch!
